“Fuck you Gumbi!” One of the funniest videos of all time. Let’s give a shout out to Ryan Bouton for sending me this video.

Rough Week For Favre

You lose to your former team with a pick six to end the game. You have allegations that you sent pictures of your cock to Jenn Sterger. And now you get hit in the nuts during practice. Rough stuff dude.

Suck It Avery!

Andy Fuck’n Pettitte. The definition of a postseason pitcher. The dude is hurt for almost half the regular season. He returns in mid-September and pitches with some groin problems. But when October comes around, the guy dominates. Last night, he was absolutely dominant, and I don’t mean Tim Lincecum 14 K dominant. I mean dominant in the way he controlled the game. Whenever the Yankees scored, Pettitte would shut down the Twins the very next inning. He always kept the momentum on our side of the field. Even when he gave up the home run to Orlando Hudson, no one panicked. The game was tied, but everyone, including Minnesota fans, knew that wasn’t going to last. Not with Pavano on the mound. For what he did in New York, that guy will NEVER beat the Yankees.

One of the highlights of the night was the blown call in the 7th. Was the pitch a strike? Yes. But guess what? That’s part of the game Carl. If you let something like that get to your head, you can’t beat the Yankees. This game was over once Pavano showed up the umpire after that pitch. I have to be honest. I thought the Twins were tougher than this. It looks like they’re looking for reasons to complain about how the Yanks always beat them. Guess what Carl? Mariano had to get four outs two night ago. Did he complain? No. That’s because he know he’s going to get Thome out on the next pitch. What do you do? Put a fastball right in Berkman’s wheel house and give up a crucial double. That’s the game right there.

I also want to give some kudos to Brian Cashman. How bout them trades?!?! Granderson: 3-4 with a double and an RBI. Berkman: 2-4 with a double, home run and 2 RBI. Kerry Wood: 1 IP, no hits, 2 strikeouts. I’m gonna go ahead and say that those moves are working out. In August, Berkman was hitting under .100 and headed straight to the DL. I was pretty pissed about the deal. But this goes to show us that perfoming in the postseason lets all the regular season problems disappear. Granderson hit under .250 in the regular season. Who cares?? He’s raking in the postseason so no one can complain about the Granderson-Jackson trade anymore. Series heads to New York Saturday at 6:30pm. Let’s end this series NOW.

Who Said Grand Can’t Hit Lefties?!?! That’s What I’m Talkin About!!!

If this was the mid-2000s Yankees, this series would’ve been over. After Sabathia gave up three runs in the first three innings, I was hoping this wasn’t ’05, ’06, ’07 all over again. Those teams would’ve backed down, let Minnesota keep the momentum and lose 8-1. This team showed fire. When Liriano faced our lineup for the third time, the Yanks finally made adjustments. Coming into the game, I knew Liriano was definitely beatable. We’ve been able to handle him his entire career. Nothing made me happier than seeing Granderson drive in two with his sixth inning triple. The main concern about Grand when we traded for him was his sub .200 average against left-handers. Throw that out the window! He crushed that ball! This shows that it doesn’t matter about the numbers when the postseason begins. Granderson came through. End of story. And how bout Teixeira!! Give me that inside fastball! Tex is fuckn phenomenal. He never gives away at-bats. Ever. And all the concern about Mariano’s blown saves in September we can forget about. Bad call by the ump in the ninth?? No big deal. I’ll get a four out save! If that was the Cubs, they would’ve cried about that blown call and Thome would’ve tied the game up with a bomb. Winners don’t complain about bad calls. They just adjust. Let’s take another one tonight and send this series back to New York up 2-0.

Sign Him Up!

Is this kid already a 5-star recruit? Why not sign a six-year old if he’s destined to be the next Lawrence Taylor? Haven’t seen a guy hit like this since the ’86 Giants.

Here We Go…

Let the postseason begin! The ride begins now. CC vs. Liriano tonight at 8:37. Let’s go.

“This is What We Think About When We Think Giants Football”

Posted in Giants on October 4, 2010 by EAST SIDE RYNO

Couldn’t ask for a better performance. The defense was magnificent. I haven’t seen the defense play this well since the Super Bowl. With the exception of Jacobs’ fumble, this game was close to perfect. Osi is officially back and Justin Tuck should now be recognized as one of the best defensive players in the game. As for the offense – a very slow start. But when the defense is playing out of their minds, it doesn’t really matter. It was good to see Eli clicking with his receivers by the fourth quarter. Bradshaw looked fantastic. Even Jacobs had a couple of good rushes and a touchdown.

Last night will definitely be remembered as one of the greatest nights in Giants football. Yes, I know it’s only Week 4. But to have a performace like that on a night where thirty former Giants were inducted into the Ring of Honor, no Giants fan could ask for anything more. This game was a  must-win game and the Giants came through. The GMen are headed next week to Houston to play a well-polished Texans team. Let’s keep this momentum going.
